I run a Debian etch system.  Is it practical to have more than one 
DrScheme system installed depending on which packages I'm interested in 

I'm a Lisp user from long long ago (I even implemented it a few times in 
the 60's).  I've been impressed by Scheme when it appeared; but my 
experience with it is just reading the ancient LAMBDA articles from MIT 
and the RABBIT implementation.

What should I read so as to become up-to-date on what has happened to 
the language since then?  I have already noticed things like set-cdr 
instead of rplacd.  Presumably there's a lot more, especially things 
like library availability.
